Foursquare Tips

  • A great breakfast spot. Grab some eggs and sausage. Or just a pastry. The muffins are really great here!
  • House breakfast is awesome
  • There's very little food here that is actually Finnish. That being said, the pulla french toast is disturbingly delicious.
  • Best Scandinavian food in Minnesota!
  • Classic breakfast is fabulous!!
  • If it's your first time try the house breakfast or the potato lefsa scramble not to mention a chocolate brownie
  • They look like good Bloody Mary's!
  • took Mom for dinner tonight. She had the Lefse scramble and loved it. I had the Finnish Beef Pasty. It was terrific. Love this place.
  • Try the beef pastry - delicious!
  • Delicious omelette with braised pork, and the Almond crispers are great!
  • They hired a nice kid, so I've had less interaction with the grumpy ladies.
  • Even if you get NOTHING else...get the toast. Trust me. One dollar. Do it.
  • Food was so-so and the two ladies were not very nice. Heard the same from another person after the fact. Not that hard to be pleasant in a customer dependent business.
  • I recco the turtle muffin. Chocolate, caramel, and, uh, more chocolate (chips). It's a meal.
  • Very thoughtful!
  • The consolidated layout is great but one counter means you have to wait for awhile to get something simple when it's busy.
  • Everything I have eaten has been delicious! Some entrees come with a side chosen by the chef daily, which is always tasty and fun.
  • The strawberry cake is yummy. You should definitely try a slice of that. Though the slice is a little big. Also try sitting outside and enjoy watching the urban life if the weather is nice!
  • Unique atmosphere with great baked items.
  • Food is overpriced for small portions. I prefer Colossal Cafe up the road, except for a quick bite.
